In optimizing your website, it's important to understand not only what people are searching for, but how they are searching—whether it's via a computer, tablet, or mobile device. Your site content needs to make sense to both humans and search engines to ensure high levels of traffic, qualified leads, brand recognition, and sales ... even with constant algorithm changes.

In this PRO seminar, you'll learn how to organize and label your website content for a greater impact on SEO and search engine marketing. You'll also learn how social media can impact your search engine marketing strategy by generating natural links and how to cater to customers using a variety of devices. Make sure both your target audience and search engines can find your site by learning today's most effective best practices for findability.
